It's Official

Fox News, CNN, and Al-Arybia are reporting that Saddam Hussein is dead.

Long live a free and democratic Iraq.

Looks like he won't be hanging around anymore. *snicker*

Well our old 'friend' in Libya wants to erect a statue of a hanging Saddam. No word if they will build one for hanging chads though. *rim-shot*

It still rankles how much a farce the execution was.

It may seem to some that Saddam got the Mussolini treatment. Except Saddam got an actual trial in a court of law empowered by a popularly elected government, a court that found him guilty, and then sentenced him to death. And not shot by a communist people's court and then strung up like Mussolini and his mistress.

I just hope the Iraqi people learn from this whole event.
